Ferry Peralta -- December 12, 2012
Alameda/Oakland ferry Peralta backing out of Ferry Building Gate E on 10-December-2001. I was surprised when they named the Peralta, because that had been the name of a Key System ferry which had been cursed with bad luck. After the fireproof boat burned, it was rebuilt into streamlined ferry Kalakala which had a long career on Puget Sound. The new Peralta has had a fairly quiet career.
